I cannot stress how important it is to read and follow along with the Wikileak updates. Everyday more and more leaks come out. There are about 250,000 leaks total; only 1300 have been released.

I posted links to two articles about this, as well as a link to the actual wikileak cable itself.
So what happened? There is a company called DynCorp that was used to train Afgahn police. It has been disclosed by the company how they are funded: about 95% of its 2 billion annual revenue comes from US taxpayers money. Lets stop right there for a moment.... If I had the ability to pick and chose where my taxes went, it sure as hell would not be DynCorp. Let me write out that number: $2,000,000,000.00. Yea, that's a lot of zeros. But thats not the biggest issue.
DynCorp used some of that money to throw a party for the trainees. No problem... I understand they worked hard and need to have some rewards. Maybe a little cheese and meat platter, some music, perhaps even a riveting game of boulderdash....oh and don't forget the little boys.
They threw a party where entertainment for the evening were bachi bazi boys. Money was paid to their pimps to have boys, ages 12 - 15 come to the party and dance for these men. The boys would be dressed in scantly female outfits and where then bid on. The winner would then take the boy for the night in order to have sex with them. There was a journalist who was working on disclosing this information, but if you look at the articles and the leaks, you can see that they obviously wanted this information to be covered up.
